This applet, from the University of California at San Diego, offers a simulation of the classic origin of life experiment as originally performed by Stanley Miller and Harold Urey in 1953. The user selects chemicals, "sparks" the mixture, and finds out what was produced in the resulting "soup." The site also offers two video explanations of the original experiments by Stanley Miller.
